I’m blushing a little bit here, but I taught my Four Magic Questions of Screenwriting seminar at NYU on Saturday, and I wanted to share some of the positive responses with you all. The point is that The Four Magic Questions of Screenwriting really helps the writing process, no matter what your writing level is. The next time I’ll be teaching the Four Magic Questions will be at the Showbiz Cafe on October 28, at 19 West 21 Street, New York, NY.
Marilyn, honestly I think your enthusiasm was the most important part of the class. Your energy is contagious! I also thought your method of teaching is very effective. You kept the class moving and very methodical without allowing tangential discussions. That is so helpful to someone who is new to this field like me. It is overwhelming as it is so your streamlining the relevant information is critical for someone at my level. Thank you again.
What your class gave me is a different way of looking at things I felt I may know.
The most basic thing being a character starting off with a DREAM. The word dream opened up far more to me than the mundane ‘goal’. I don’t know why- just did. Starting that- moving opposite (a2.2) and just building around from there shed a tremendous amount of light.
